Honest Appraisals of New Website Appreciated

  chrisroyale 14:52 17 Nov 2005


A couple of weeks ago I had, what I thought, would be a good idea for a website. Well, after a couple of weeks of learning php and javascript I've got it (mostly) up and running and would appreciate some critical feedback on the design of the site.

The URL is : click here

The basic idea of the website is that anyone can reserve the front page for 15 minutes, and in doing so make themselves 'famous'.

Thanks in advance,

Ah yes, offensive messages... To be honest I had a couple of pretty dodgy pictures early on, but it's properly moderated now with a time-delay so that I can vet the images and links. It's supposed to be a family friendly site so I really want anything offensive on there.

Miles Mendoza? Yes, that would be nice. :)

and I wish you luck with it. You'll need to get control of that gallery page before it scrolls off the planet. Create some tables, and put the thumbnails into cells - you'll get more on the pages, and you can add a click-through to larger versions if you want to.

All I get is:

This web site is coming soon

If you are the owner of this web site you have not uploaded (or incorrectly uploaded) your web site.

All I get is "this website is coming soon" and "If you are the owner of this web site you have not uploaded (or incorrectly uploaded) your web site. For information on uploading your web site using FTP client software or web design software, click here for FTP Upload Information."

Thanks for that info. I'm currently changing the hosting account and the URL redirection has come into place much sooner than I expected - I only requested it 15 minutes ago!

I've quickly dropped an index page which will take you to the site's new temporary home.

Apologies for any inconvenience!

Just another quick message to say I've moved the site to the new hosting server. Thanks for all the feedback so far :)

Hi Everyone.

Just to let you know I have completely redesigned the site and hopefully it is an improvement on the first version.

Thanks for your feedback, and please don't be afraid to reserve your 15 minutes of fame! :)

If anyone can give me any advice on how to market this site to get more hits I'd appreciate it.
